Jane Austen wrote her novels around 200 years ago, so inevitably some of the language is rather old-fashioned to our modern eyes, and in some cases may be incomprehensible, particularly to non-native English speakers! In the text, you'll see the occasional word or phrase which I thought deserved some kind of explanation - if you click on the link you'll find some notes on the text. These open in a new window, so you can switch back and forth between the two as you read your way through. If you find any other words or phrases that don't make sense to you, please let me know and I'll add it to the notes.
The text of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (and of her other novels) is freely available as an e-text. This version and its html format are © Austen for Beginners 2008.
